Jesse Watters sits down for an exclusive interview with presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on Watters World Saturday on Fox News Channel at 8 p.m. Eastern Time,
Among the highlights, Trump’s thoughts on President Obama jumping in to endorse Hillary:
Well, we just had one of the worst jobs reports in seven years. The worst in seven years. And frankly, he ought to be focused on jobs — he ought to be focused on the economy, making decent deals with countries like Mexico that are ripping us off like you’ve never seen before — Mexico is making a fortune off our backs, and he ought to be focused on China, he ought to be focused on many other places. He ought to be looking into the military where it’s being totally depleted, where they have to use used parts to fix our fighter jets, which are also very old. You know, there are so many other things. Look, he’s one of the worst presidents in our history and he shouldn’t be up on late night shows, unless it’s to get elected. And I hope he comes into the election, because I would love to take good shots at him also, and I guess once he does, just like Bill, once he does, he’s open prey.
The New York billionaire has plenty to say about how he will deal with criticism from both the left and right:
Well I think one thing, Jesse, the Republicans better get tougher because the way they are right now, they are — you know, I got more votes than anybody in the history of the Republican primaries, by a lot, more than anybody, I mean like millions, and they better get a lot tougher or they’re going to have a lot of lawsuits. They’re not just going to lose presidency. They’re going to lose a lot of different places. I watch them and I’m watching their language and their body language and these are people that — they better get tough, Jesse, or it’s going to be not a good picture.
The presumptive Republican nominee sounds off on whether he’s worried too much talk of Clinton scandals will distract from issues like the economy and immigration.
Well I am. I mean, every time we get off subject — look, I couldn’t even talk about the jobs report because of all the different things that are thrown at you, and you know, the press is very, very biased. I’ve never seen anything like it, actually. I mean it’s a one way story from virtually everybody, other than you, Jesse, other than you.
Trump on how to go after Clinton’s weaknesses without letting her play the victim:
Well, she plays the victim card and she plays the woman card. I watched the other night where everything — the whole thing was about the woman card, and I think women are sick and tired of her, frankly, and I don’t think she’s going to do well with women. Women don’t like her. She turns out — I use the word corrupt Hillary, and she’s corrupt and she’s been corrupt for a long, long time. You look at some of the deals that are going on at that foundation, you look at the book that was written, and it’s incredible. I mean if that were written about a Republican, it would have been front page news all over the world and she would have been out in about two weeks.
